Big Sean Attacked in Queens

2/18/2017 7:45 AM PST

Big Sean got a slap in the face -- literally -- at a CD signing in Queens, and the guy who did it is probably hurting today.

The incident went down Friday night at a record store.  It's unclear why the man attacked Sean, but it didn't matter to the rapper's bodyguards who took the guy down with dispatch. Cops took over and arrested the dude.

Big Sean confirmed as much when he tweeted about the incident ... saying it happened after signing the guy's CD.

President Trump Mar-a-Lago Protected from Planes, Drones and Rockets

2/18/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0217-mar-a-lago-donald-trump-no-drones-fun-art-02President Trump's Winter White House is in an aerial bubble ... with major restrictions on drones and other aircraft flying within miles of Mar-a-Lago.

Drones cannot be flown within a 10 nautical mile radius of the area surrounding the president's estate, during the time he's there. When Trump leaves, people can fly drones only with prior FAA and airport approval.

Palm Beach International Airport is 2.5 miles away from Mar-a-Lago. Commercial and government flights will not be restricted, but private pilots will be put through the ringer. We're told before landing at PBI, private pilots must land at a nearby airport and get hardcore TSA screening, which includes ID verification, vetting of all pilots, crew and passengers, screening of baggage and airplane inspection.

Also, no firearms are allowed onboard.

And there's more. Each private pilot is given a "discreet code" -- a secret password -- that they must continuously squawk back to the PBI tower.

One more thing. While Trump is in town, no one can balloon, hang glide, skydive or tow a banner over the estate. Also, no rockets.

0217-main-tarek-associates-tmz-05"Flip or Flop" star Tarek El Moussa's the only pretty mug you'll see on the flyer pimping his real estate biz ... Christina's apparently been kicked to the curb.

TMZ got its webbed hands on Tarek's ad that started circulating in the O.C. ... and he's flying solo. Tarek's now with Sotheby's ... and she's clearly not.

It's a big departure from they way they created their brand ... sort of like Sonny and Cher.

Tarek and Christina are putting on happy faces while they film their TV show ..but off-screen it's now The Sonny Show.

Shelly Sterling Tenant Sues You Fractured My Face!!!

0217-sterling-injuries-3

Shelly Sterling's got a bush problem and she may be way beyond a landscaper solution.

Shelly's being sued by one of her tenants, claiming her shoddy yard work caused her severe injuries.

Franchesca Cacciapuoti says she tripped over a rose bush that sprouted onto the walkway and suffered a badly bruised face, as well as a fractured nose and finger.

The 84-year-old retiree says Shelly -- who runs the Sterling Family Trust which manages the building -- failed to properly maintain the walkway.

Cacciapuoti's lawyer, Arthur Liberty, says Shelly's gardeners were sloppy, cutting only a stem here and there rather than cutting them all down to the nub. Arthur says the area where Cacciapuoti tripped is dimly lit.

We've reached out to Shelly, but so far no word back.

Joe Jonas Surprising Kid Cancer Patients With DNCE-THON

EXCLUSIVE

0217_DNCE_backstage_tmz_wmJoe Jonas and his DNCE mates are about to bust into a dance marathon for kids fighting cancer ... and turn the night into a full concert.

We got a pic of Joe and the band backstage Friday evening at THON ... the annual no sleep, no sit, 46 hour dance marathon on the Penn State campus. The event raises millions for cancer research, and this year organizers planned the DNCE surprise.

We're told Joe and co. plan to coolly walk out while the kids are doing a lip-synch battle to "Cake By The Ocean" -- and then launch into a 45 minute set.

Great gig for DNCE and a great cause.

Brooklyn Beckham's collarbone snapped while he was hotdoggin' it on his snowboard, and lucky for him -- and us -- he was recording the disastrous run. 

David and Victoria's model kid was cruising downhill in Whistler when he wiped out, and once you see the break happen ... it's hard not to grimace.

0217_Brooklyn-Beckham_collerbone_instagramThe 17-year-old posted the X-ray he got at a local hospital. The only thing Brooklyn's gonna be modeling for several weeks is sling.

Gnarly, bro!

MLB Stars Get Iconic 'Walking Dead' Weapon Meet Lucille

2/17/2017 3:31 PM PST

ZOMBIES, BEWARE ... a couple of MLB stars just got some heavy-duty undead killing weaponry in the form of Lucille, the iconic barbed wire covered baseball bat from "The Walking Dead."

BTW -- if you don't watch 'TWD' (which you should), Lucille is wielded by the ultimate scumbag/badass Negan ... and was used in one of the most brutal scenes in television history earlier this season.

That brutality didn't stop J.D. Martinez of the Tigers and Yasiel Puig of the Dodgers from fanning out when replicas of Lucille were delivered to their team's spring training earlier Friday, courtesy of the show's production.

R.I.P. to Glenn and Abraham.
